Vista on UMPC

Interesting in Vista on UMPC?
Read this article: The "OW!" starts now: Don't buy Vista for your UMPC.

My conclusions:
  • MS Vista is really expensive! --> Perhaps we see the beginning of the end for MS??
  • Don't upgrade your UMPC, it is a really bad idea!
  • Wait until they are boxed with Vista, then perhaps buy a new UMPC, but wait for reviews of Vista UMPCs to be published.

MS Vista or Apple's Leopard on my next laptop

Will my next pc laptop running MS Vista or Apple's Leopard (Mac OS 10.5)?
That is the question for me!
Read this interesting article "Vista: Worthy, Largely Unexciting"

My answer:
Well, when Apple have released Leopard (Q1/Q2 2007) then I will make my decision, but I don't think it will be MS Vista.

Developers have got the power!

If company like Apple and Microsoft don't understand that new devices need Java support, no problems JavaME technology is now Open Source!

I think the PhoneME project is already a success and much earlier than I thought!

Check this out:
Very nice work!

I am waiting and waiting for cool Java devices

I am waiting and waiting for cool things to show up, for example:
  • A ultra thin laptop, with a 11-inch screen and a keyboard. With a screen that I am able to flip horizontally, transforming the laptop into a tablet
  • A Next Generations UMPC (running MS Vista tablet Edition). Samsung have a cool device called Samsung SPH-P9000, but it is a Korea-only device (running Windows XP Tablet Edition used of UMPC).
  • A Nokia internet tablet, with a 11-inch screen & with a keyboard and also with Java support. Nokia have now released Nokia N800 Internet Tablet, but it has a small screen, no keyboard and NO Java support.
  • A Next Generation JavaME device (running JavaME/CDC1.1/PP1.1 and AGUI or JavaME/CDC1.1/FP1.1 and eSWT).
  • A iPhone, it is released but I have to wait to Q4 2007, when Apple release it here in Europe. But a iPhone with no Java support?!
  • .... and also for Apple's next OS X called Leopard, I thought to get more information from Apple's MacWorld event now, but me and other are disappointed!
I think now I have to wait and see what they releases at the 3GSM World Congress, 12-15 Feb 2007 in Barcelona and of course at next JavaOne, 8-11 May 2007.

the Apple iPhone must have Java

Apple have done it again!
Apple have announced a phone called iPhone!
  • iPhone runs OS X
  • Yahoo promise to push out mail!
It will be a success!

I think it would be great if iPhone have Java support!

It is a requests for the PhoneME Advanced project
  • Port of CDC/Personal Profile needed for the iPhone!
